     Special Note -  This vintage Taigaa razor is a great example of Japanese craftsmanship.  Although about half a century old, this new-old stock razor is in pristine condition. The tang is mirror bright and the factory grind is strong and prevalent throughout the blade.  The spine and bevel are clean and show no signs of hone wear.  Everything looks factory fresh.  The blade is tight in its scales and closes centered.  The scales are a rare design: black with gold flecks.  Comes with its box as shown.

    Condition: hair moistened, tip out/root in

    HHT-0 - shave: The hair can be shaved immediately at the holding point. This is strictly spoken not a true HHT, but it does tell us that the edge is capable of shaving. [all other attempts must be made at least half an inch from the holding point]

    HHT-1 - violin : The hair doesn't cut, but it "plays violin" with the edge. This is due to the shingles catching the edge, but it's not sharp enough to penetrate. On a full hollow razor, a faint ringing sound can be heard. On all razors it can be felt with the fingertips that hold the hair.

    HHT-2 - split: When it is dragged across the edge, the edge catches the hair and splits it lengthwise.

    HHT-3 - catch&pop: When it is dragged across the edge a bit, the edge catches the hair and pops it. The severed part will jump away.

    HHT-4 - pop: The hair is popped immediately when it touches the edge. It still jumps away.

    HHT-5 - silent slicer: The hair falls silently as soon as it touches the edge.
